View Full Version : Leaves in nj

10-24-2010, 10:29 PM
Just started a lawn business this year really. Still in school and only have 6 actual lawn customers in my area. Now i have a trailer so i can go to most of middlesex county comfortably. I also bought a used bob-cat walk behind with sulky and grass catcher. I know i should be able to make some serious cash with it for leaves, but how much?

In my town we have to bag and i dont think i can really take them away(using a tiny trailer just barely big enough). Most lots are around 60 by 120 give or take with big trees. I usually rake about 30+ bags for my lawn a year. Should i charge by the bag or per job. A lot of people dont wanna hear $150. I also thought of hiring a friend for like $10 an hr to just fill up bags from a wheelbarrow that i will dump the catcher into to save time. Any help greatly appreciated.
